What Our Customers Say...
Illustrated, Publishers' Original Binding, With Dustwrapper
Fridtjof Nansen was known for being many things during his life time, including an explorer, a diplomat, and a champion ice skater. Studying zoology at university in what is now Oslo, Nansen took his first sea voyage to the Arctic for five months. A few years later he went on another expedition to Greenland, and another to the North Pole, which inspired his book 'Farthest North', which was published in 1897. With numerous plates, illustrations, and photographs throughout, including drawings by Nansen himself.
In the original publisher's full calf binding, with the original unclipped dustwrapper. Externally, very smart. Very minor bumping to the head and tail of spine and to the extremities. Light edgewear to the dustwrapper, with a small tear to the tail of the spine. Very light markings to the dustwrapper causing small discolouration. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright and clean throughout.
